Poker Night!

So I need the bloggy worlds help! We are hosting a poker night at our house for the first time ever. I am trying to plan my menu and I am unsure of what to make. Chris said they like to snack all night so I am trying to come up with foods that they can nibble on here and there. Here is what I am thinking so far and I would love some feed back with great new ideas. Let me clarify I would love great and EASY new ideas lol.

  • Spinach Dip
  • Throw up dip lol Sorry don't know the correct name - Velveeta cheese, beef and salsa
  • I am torn between going down to the Mellow Mushroom and getting pizza or
  • Homemade Chicken Salad or I guess I could do both (thoughts?)
  • Diced up tomatoes and cucumbers, carrots and other fresh veggies (maybe, I have to run this by Chris. I don't know if they want healthy or junky lol)
  • For dessert I am going to make Dirt Dessert in a beach sand pall

2 (8 oz.) cream cheese

2 (3 oz.) instant vanilla pudding

3 c. milk

2(16 oz.) Cool Whip

2 tsp. vanilla

1 lg. pkg. Oreo cookies

Gummy worms (optional)
Cream sugar and cream cheese. Beat milk, pudding and vanilla until thick, then add to cream cheese mixture. Fold in Cool Whip. Grind Oreo cookies in blender.
Layer Oreo mixture and creamy mixture, hiding gummy worms in flower pot, ending with cookie mixture on top. Chill overnight. Put flowers into "dirt" and surprise your guests when you serve your centerpiece for dessert! Makes enough for 2 pots.

Or I could scratch the pizza and chicken salad and have Chris grill Hamburgers and hot dogs and have potato salad, chips and maybe some baked beans. Hmmm, I am liking the sound of that. Actually what I may do is have him grill the burgers and dogs and I will make chicken salad. Then the guys can have some of each or have a variety to pick from. What are your thoughts? Do you have any other ideas? Please share them if you do!!!

  1. I would get crazy and do a theme. Going off of the Dirt Dessert theme in the sand pail, I'd do a beach theme with mini burgers, a salad that you dish up with little sand rakes, chicken salad molded into the shape of a sandcastle and sprinkled with bread crumbs so it'll look like sad, etc. I'd use beach towels as the table runner and decorate the table with shells. Oooh. I'd serve the dip in a couple of conch shells or get a couple of cheap flippers and put the bowl in the foot opening. I could go on and on, but this probably isn't the info you were looking for, so I'll stop. :)

  3. I like the idea of a theme as well. You could do a Mexican theme and do a taco bar. Or what about a luau party. You could do skewers with chicken, pineapple, and cherry tomoatos. You could get everyone a lai necklace. I think the first poster had a good idea with the mini cheese burgers.
